I’m lusting over a new leather clutch, jacket and trousers; these beauties above are some of my recent faves. Best get saving my pennies!
Is it payday yet?

OOTD: Zara Red Jumper

20140113-171354.jpgI went to meet my lovely friend today and quickly took some piccies of my new Zara jumper.

I bought this in the sale for £22.99! I chose it because of the roll neck, which I’m loving atm and the colour is to die for. I teamed it up with my all time fave American Apparel Riding Pants, Topshop boots and my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. My necklace is from Collard Manson and my rings are from &OtherStories.

& Other Stories

As I’ve been down to London I managed to have a wonder around one of my favourite shops & Other Stories.

There is only one store in the UK; Regents St! SOB! But I’ve had the pleasure, over the summer to pop in the Milan and Barcelona store. My friend and I picked up these rings in Barcelona and I grabbed this eye brush in London last week.

It has a large make up and cosmetics section, which has a variety of brands but also their own. The clothes are Zara-esque, yet slightly pricier. I especially like their accessories. If your in London make sure you drop by, they’re also available online

Made in Chelsea Style!

I love Made in Chelsea and  it will be back on our screens before we know it! YEY!

I especially love Rosie Fortescue and Millie Mackintosh and a little riffle through their wardrobes would be treat! Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen 😦 dooouche! So instead, I thought I’d pull a few ideas together to help achieve that MIC look for the everyday lovely lady.

Just a few bits and bobs I’ve bought recently…

Maybelline Brow Drama: Dark Blonde

Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Blonde; £4.99 at Boots… There’s buy one, get on half price at the mo, so I also bought L’oreal Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe.

The latter is great, does exactly what you expect and lives up to the hype! This one is matte and stays all day with no dreaded crease line! I love this colour too, very wearable…

But I’m sorry brow drama… I’m disappointed; it says it has a no streak, no clump formula, yes it may, but the product application is inconsistent, leaving you with patchy eyebrows. I think you may as well use something like Brow Beater by HD Brows which is more or less a clear mascara…

Meh!

The beautiful Two Sided Soft Scarf by Zara,  well more blanket then scarf…

Its dog tooth on one side and tartan on the reverse; it’s very oversized, which I love (minus the neck ache) and extremely comfy. I can’t wait to wear this over the chilly months! It costs £19.99 but well worth it.

H&M Biker Jacket was a steal at £34.99 and there doing a £5.00 off voucher when you buy in store. I’ve been looking for a jacket for this in between weather and I’d seen something similar in Topshop for like 80 quid, so when I saw this it ticked all the boxes. It has a detachable fur cover which, I think looks a bit cheap and nasty so I took it off. Check it out online here.

Dr Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm

I think I’ve blogged about this before; this arrived in my Glossy Box a few months ago and since I’ve been addicted. I use it for work instead of foundation; as I hate looking too dolled up, especially for work, therefore a great happy medium.  At the minute there is a 1/3 off at Boots. It says it’s suitable for 30+ but I don’t think it matters, its packed with the good stuff, its spf40 and I.LOVE.IT.

Primark Brush Holder

Primmie brush holder; I think this was about £3.00?! Not sure, I was unsure when I bought it, I think it was the black and gold combo but, I took a chance and intend to use it for travelling.  I also bought some midi rings for a pound…

Last, but not least, I succumbed to Boots 3 for 2 deal and purchased these.

I’d heard a few raves on various blogs about the EverRiche range and being a hair snob sticking to either Joico or Sebastian. I was sceptical.  I’ve not properly used them yet to give an honest review, but I know L’Oreal own Kerastase so hoepfully it’ll compare. I did used to use the pink Elvive and loved it, until someone told me it put a plastic like coating on your hair so that you thought it felt health but really it was’nt 😦 … sad times…
